Intensive care for dry and pale skin
- Buriti oil is suitable for daily skincare routine. Apply in a thin layer directly on clean skin. Only two drops might be just enough for face or hand care. Use in the morning and/or evening.

Daily care for dry and damaged hair
- Apply a few drops of Buriti oil on dry hair tips and pass-through with a thick comb. Buriti is suitable for daily hair care. Your hair will be easier to maintain with healthier tips and soft texture.
Handmade natural cosmetics

You can mix in other vegetable and essential oils for your personalized scent, or even make your own macerate.

By tradition, Buriti is considered a delicious dressing oil.
It is mostly used for rice and salads. It can also be added into a smoothie or simply consume on a teaspoon as a diet supplement.
β-carotene is a unique vegan source of vitamin A.
Vitamin A is known in two primary forms:
- The active vitamin A called retinol – animal origin.
- Provitamin A called beta carotene – plant origin.
The body converts provitamin A, β-carotene, into the active form of vitamin A, retinol.
Conversion occurs mostly in the liver, and therefore beta-carotene is often taken as a dietary supplement.
Additionally, Amazon women believe that the buriti fruit maintains the balance of the female hormone estrogen, emphasizes female curves, regulates menopause, and bestows fertility.
Although in local life buriti is used for both cosmetic and nutrition purposes, it’s still quite exotic and unknown to the European market and therefore on sale just as a skincare oil.
Scientist and explorer Alexander Von Humboldt called the buriti palm a “tree of life” because of its widespread use in Native American life.
Locals often cut down palm trees despite the fact that the main product is not wood itself !
Buriti harvesting strategies are unsustainable from an environmental and economic point of view. Mayantu is taking active measures to counteract this destructive practice. We do NOT cut down trees. We do NOT create plantations.
The fruits grow on 3 to 4 fruiting branches on top of palm trees. Harvesters climb palm trees using the traditional rope technique.
Fruit dried in the sun is separated from the scales and mechanically processed in the process of cold pressing. The oil is stored in stainless steel barrels.
The remaining dry content is thermally treated and ground into a protein powder used in the local diet.
